Hi Jurriaan:
 
There have been a series of related studies which show that stress and
injuries
increase rapidly with overtime. These studies confirm that it is overtime
which
is the cause rather than the efffect.  This particular study should not be
very
surprising since it has long been known that physical and mental stress are
related.
 
Other studies have shown that there is a cause-and-effect observable
empirical 
relation between unemployment and other social phenomena such that when 
unemployment (cause) goes up so do deaths from liver cirrhosis, deaths from 
fatal heart attacks and strokes, deaths from suicide, increased admissions
to 
mental hospitals, increased admissions to state prisons, increased spousal
abuse, increased child abuse, increased substance abuse, increased divorce
rates, etc. 
 
In solidarity, Jerry
